Sotheby's, New York, NY, United States New York City, New York

_A_longside Masters Week, Sotheby’s New York will proudly present an exhibition of works by Dutch fine art photographer, Carla van de Puttelaar. Van de Puttelaar lives and works in Amsterdam. Her photographic work has gained worldwide recognition, and she has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries around the world. Her cover for The New York Times Magazine in 2015 was selected as one of their best photos of the year.

In the spring of 2017, Van de Puttelaar developed a new and timely series devoted to accomplished women in the art world, Artfully Dressed: Women in the Art World. While working on this ongoing project, Van de Puttelaar became even more impressed by the personalities and achievements of these women. United in their brilliance and strength, they represent a wide range of backgrounds, nationalities, careers, and expertise. To date, over 200 women worldwide have participated in Van de Puttelaar’s project.

Sotheby’s is thrilled to host an exhibition of selected photographs from this empowering and globally recognized series that draws inspiration from Old Masters and specifically 17th-century portraiture. In addition to the existing works, Sotheby’s commissioned a continuation of the series featuring prominent American women. This non-selling exhibition is displayed in tandem with Sotheby’s Masters Week – viewed alongside paintings, drawings and sculpture from centuries earlier as well as alongside The Female Triumphant, a curated auction event celebrating the skill and rarity of pioneering female artists from the 16th to 19th centuries.
